Description

Discover the charm, wonder, and history of Santorini with a private guide on this half-day tour. Uncover one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean at the Akrotiri excavations, absorb a wide range of stunning views, and enjoy some free time in the village of Oia.

Your tour begins with a stop at the island's iconic caldera, a striking viewpoint. Enjoy views of staggered cliffs and rock layers dotted with whitewashed houses and blue domes. Then head to Akrotiri, a former, Minoan Bronze Age settlement, for more insight into the island's ancient history. Learn about the island's first inhabitants, who arrived there in 3000 BC.

Next, head up to the island's highest point, where the Prophet Elias Monastery is perched—at almost 2,000 feet (565 m). Listen to monks chanting and admire the far-reaching views that span the entire region from this stunning vantage point. Your tour is complete with a visit to the quintessential village Oia: Enjoy some free time here to explore.
